Volunteers For Jesus

Frank M. Davis             L.M. Evilsizer

We are volunteers for Jesus, Fighting 'gainst the mighty wrong,
And 'tis He, our Captain, leads us So successfully along;
We will never grow discouraged, But will strike the heavy blow,
That will end the fearful conflict, And put down a crafty foe.

"Ever onward" is our watchword, For our Saviour and the Right,
See our banners waving o'er us, In the thickest of the fight;
We will never yield or falter, Battling on till set of sun,
Till the strife with sin is ended, And a vict'ry has been won.

When the battle shall be ended, And we lay our armor down,
We shall then go home rejoicing, Worthy to receive the crown;
Then to dwell in peace forever, With our Captain, Saviour, King,
Singing forth His praise triumphant, Making heaven's arches ring.


Onward, ever onward marching, Fully armed to meet the foe;
Jesus leads our swelling columns, On to victory we go.
Do no falter, Christian brother, Raise your banner to the sky,
When the foe at last is vanquished, We shall rest at home on high.
